Arsenal made it three wins in the space of a week as they came back from behind to beat Everton on Sunday.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin opened the scoring for the visitors but then a pivotal moment came when Sead Kolasinac was replaced by Bukayo Saka. The youngster has been in fine form this season and likely was left out due to the number of games he has played recently, but it didn’t take long for Saka to show why he is so highly rated.
He received the ball on the left flank and delivered an inch-perfect cross from close to the touchline for Eddie Nketiah to score his first Premier League goal of the season. That takes Saka to an impressive eight assists for the season across the Premier League and Europa League (per WhoScored).
Naturally, there have been a number of fans singing the praises of the 18-year-old, who is proving to be an inspired part of Arsenal’s season.
It’s actually scary how good he is at just 18
